Beethoven Symphony No. 5

Berlioz, the most inventive orchestral composer of his age, poured all the thrill and romance of the Eternal City into his Roman Carnival Overture. Boisterous dance music and swooning love songs bring this raucous festival to life. Where Berlioz piece is boisterous, Prokofiev’s Fifth Piano Concerto is coy like a cat, wriggling out of every preconception and cliché as it charts an original path through the minefield of history. Finally, Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony is a wholly different creature, one with forward drive and a unyielding fidelity.
